Chelsea Truck Company has created the CJ300 Black Hawk Edition based off of a 2.8 Diesel Wrangler Sahara. Only 50 will be built and they start at about $77k

So many changes, it's really difficult to list it off. Basically, A new front end including lights, front and rear wings have been widened, mirrors, exhaust, even the fuel cap has been changed. New wheels and "liquid-gold" gold painted calipers.

Kahn Power Upgrade for the Ecu for better power, enhanced fuel economy, and improved response/delivery.

The interior is something on its own that's better left for you to observe. Not too sure how I feel about it though.

Check it out and share your thoughts ! Who would buy one ?!

Too bad they didn't do anything different to the tail lights since even just a redesigned tail light lense could have done a lot and its not often you get a vehicle where you have an easy shape to worth with.

Full LED tail lights would look really good in this application. It would flow perfectly. Include some full LED markers on the bottom and you'd be good to go. Those wheels are really nice though. Carries the luxury feel.

I agree and it's funny that out of everything they did LED tails were left out, in my opinion its one of the last pieces to really complete the look. The wider fenders make up for it however since I'm a big Land Cruiser and Land Rover fan, these fenders bring it close to that level of ruggedness

I used to find a lot of people went for the LED tails first as they were so easy to change and so achievable. Wonder why they skipped out on this one. Would've completed it I think.

I do like the interior though. It's not for everyone but I love it.

Think Kahn Design will come out with a power upgrade for the new JL? That's the only worthwhile upgrade from the Black Hawk edition.

Besides the hideous upholstery, the seats may be something I'm interested in too. They certainly look comfortable, but I can't see myself wanting any of the other features.

ECU tunes should be it and there's no way they can pass up on that opportunity since it's easy to push. When it comes to performance mods its what everyone and their mother goes after. Plus they're already into the business of remapping. Smart way to deploy themselves.

Most I see on their site are exhausts. That's about it. They should come out with ECU OTS tunes at the least to go with the exhausts though.

Someone will probably need to lend them a Wrangler for product development, take one for the team and maybe get a discounted tune along the way.

Does anyone else find it odd that they added an extra bump above the front and rear wheel flares? I can see the use of them if they open, storage for extra tools and whatnot. but they look tightly bolted on.

If Jeep is smart they will give some to aftermarket companies so the ball can get rolling before owners take delivery. Often publications get these months before owners, during that time some might get sent to other vital players.

I think the extra bumps up are just to give it a larger, more aggressive stance on the kit itself. Would be great if they were able to be used as storage compartments but I highly doubt it. These kits are typically just purely aesthetic. They could've even vented the rear over fenders from the back, would be kinda cool to see one of these going through the dunes and sand from the wheels blowing through the flares.

Wow. Definitely not my cup of tea! Jeep Wranglers are not your usual Chelsea Tractors...

Same here to an extent but I can see how it would sell well for them. G-Wagons are what people are really after but we know how much those sell for and this is the best G-Wagon-like thing for someone to get.

i have yet to see anyone use parts from them and that to me says a lot unless its expensive and takes a long time to get which in that case a cheaper aftermarket parts maker could come along and change that.
